    fancied a go at a bit of the well played out Carbon wrapping. i know everyone has done it, but I really like it, plus its not permanent is it?
    I bought a 30x120 sheet of ebay and had a ago, you def need a heat gun to do this, at first its like trying to bend card around a shape, and with heat it turns to a really stretchy skin, like a baloon. Its quite addictive!
    my first attempt went quite well had to do it in two parts, I could not get it to stretch around the side and the curves where the mirror attaches.
    wanted to do the grill and the mirrors

    Looks like you've done an excellent job with that carbon wrapping mate! I have considered doing my interior trim, as it's piano black, and a tad bland at the moment. How much was the sheet of carbon fibre?

    Can't wait to see the wheels on...what are you waiting for?

    the wheels are in pieces in the garage, one of the lips is a bit bent, so even if I build them I may need a new lip! I will get on with it though.
    The carbon sheet was only about 18 make sure its the 3m stuff - link below.

    on pieces without many curves it would be dead easy, 1x mirror took about 2 hours! 1x to go.
